Players to beat Nadal at the French Open

  • Robin Soderling – 4th Round 2009
  • Novak Djokovic – Quarter finals 2015

The two players to defeat Nadal at the French Open are Swede Robin Soderling in the 4th Round of the 2009 Open, and Novak Djokovic in the 2015 Quarter finals. Nadal withdrew from the 2016 championship with a wrist injury before his 3rd round match against fellow Spaniard Marcel Granollers. At the 2009 loss against Soderling Nadal was injured in both knees and had to withdraw from Queens and Wimbledon as defending champion in July. In 2015 against Djokovic the Spaniard had no confidence and experienced his worst year on the ATP tour finishing the year at No. 9 at the ATP rankings.

Robin Soderling

For the record, Soderling took all before him at the 2009 French Open, only succumbing to Roger Federer in the final. When he defeated Nadal in the 4th round, it was Nadal’s first loss at Roland Garros after 31 consecutive victories. Indeed, it was his first loss on clay in best of 5 set tennis. Nadal was affected by injury during the 2009 campaign and later withdrew from both Queens Club and Wimbledon the same year.

Novak Djokovic

Serbian Novak Djokovic is only the second player to defeat Nadal at the French Open. The result was far less of a surprise than it was when Soderling beat Nadal, Djokovic even entering the match as the favourite. Nadal had been struggling in his return to competitive tennis after several injuries. Djokovic went on to the final the same year but lost to Stan Wawrinka.
